Our faculty and students consistently contribute to the national conversation on environmental health and injury prevention. We partner with local and federal government, healthcare delivery systems, and communities to develop, implement, and share policies, science, and practice that tackle today’s most pressing health challenges related to climate change, global infectious disease outbreaks, health equity, food safety, and other timely issues. Our location, collaborative spirit and integrated health sciences infrastructure uniquely positions the school as a national leader in these efforts.
